Shippers Responsibility
We are engaged in offering Courier Services to our clients. These services also include packaging and delivering dangerous goods. There are many regulations and penalties associated with the movement of these products. The shippers make sure that articles or substances are not prohibited for transport by air. Articles or substances must be properly identified, classified, packed, marked, labeled and documented according to the IATA dangerous goods and government regulations.   Before packing dangerous goods for transport by air, the Shipper must:  
  • Identify, correctly and fully, all dangerous articles and dangerous substances within the consignment;
  • Classify each dangerous good by determining under which of the nine classes it falls and, where relevant, determining any subsidiary hazards
  • Where relevant, assign each item of dangerous goods to one of the three packing groups within its class
  • Ensure that the documentation, which accompanies the shipment is complete and in accordance with IATA dangerous
  For further assistance, a Dangerous Goods Logistics Alliance Member (i.e. Freight Forwarder) in the area can be contacted.   The International Air Transport Association (IATA) categorizes dangerous goods into nine classes like:   Class 1 - Explosives Class 2 - Gas Class 3 - Flammable liquids Class 4 - Flammable solids Class 5 - Oxidizing substances and organic peroxides Class 6 - Poisonous (toxic) and infectious substances Class 7 - Radioactive materials Class 8 - Corrosives Class 9 - Miscellaneous articles and substances such as:

  Packing Group Criteria:   Dangerous goods are assigned to the relevant packing group according to the degree of hazard they represent:
